‘Winter Soul,’ by Tibor Nagy

Winter Soul, by Tibor Nagy
oil on canvas, 11” x 20”

Slovakian painter Tibor Nagy has the great ability to capture scenes with dramatic, minimal brush strokes and use of the palette knife– a quick glance at his canvas shows how well he does the capture; studying more closely (like the detail of the bottom right-hand corner, below) reveals just how abstract are the rough, dramatic daubs that achieve the effect.

Brilliant stuff.

  1. Yep, great. Its a great skill creating just enough to let the eye and mind complete the details. I recall be taught how to paint grass with hardly any strokes and being both amazed delighted to see that less can be more.
